Teenagers are not happy, says UK-based Survey
UK researchers have conducted a study that has focused on children's behavior. According to the study, children have been staying very unhappy because of certain reasons.
It seems that Britain's young teenagers are not happy with the kind of life that they are leading. After 2008, it has been witnessed in the study that the children are not happy with their life. Earlier it was dubbed as teenager angst. This also compelled the Children's Society to warn seniors to understand their teenagers.
It was unveiled through the study that the children between eight and 15 were not happy under several parameters. Under characteristics like levels of choice, autonomy and freedom with 14 and 15-year-olds, they have not been able to meet satisfaction levels. They have exhibited `low wellbeing' according to the study.
"This damaging attitude can no longer continue when so many are desperately unhappy and struggling with serious issues including self-harm and suicidal thoughts", said Emma-Jane Cross, founder of MindFull.
Scientists have found a protein dubbed as CRF1 in the pituitary gland responsible for the release of hormones linked with stress and anxiety.
The Good Childhood Report 2013 has also added that the group is found to be unhappy after school as they have more freedom of choices after schooldays.
